Previously, if two or more pour objects overlapped and had overlapping pour breaks, deleting the pour breakbuilding object used to split a pour object into smaller pour objects

that had been created first also deleted the second pour break, even if the pour breaks were not dependent on each other. This does not happen anymore. You can now separately delete the pour breaks.

TTSD-33605 Modeling

Previously, when you created a stand-alone bent plateplate that is created by picking points and whose shape is conical or cylindrical

so that the top arc start point was the same as the top arc center point, Tekla Structures stopped working. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-33487 Modeling

Tekla Structures model background colors are now correctly set back to the default colors when leaving the background color advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups

In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.

In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.

The solid errors found in the currently open model are now shown in the report that opens when you use the Diagnose & repair > Diagnose model command on the File menu.

TTSD-33373 Modeling

The contents of an assembly are now shown correctly when using the Assembly > Show assembly command.

TTSD-33341 Modeling

Previously, setting the work planeplane that the user has chosen in a model and that is currently active for working on in a model view

Newly created, copied, or moved model objects comply with the work plane. For example, shifting the work plane to follow a sloped plane makes it easier to model sloped structures.

could in some cases cause small deviations in the accuracy of work plane coordinates. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-32919 Modeling

Previously, Tekla Structures could crash when creating a model on a file server. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-30956 Modeling

Previously, when modifying the geometry of an item, the reference pointpoint that Tekla Structures creates when the user creates a model object, the point being visualized as a handle

The reference points follow the model object if it is moved. They are only deleted if the related model object is deleted.

Reference points can be selected as snap points in a snap switch.

was sometimes lost when adding an edge to the item. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-30827 Modeling

The Move special > Mirror and Copy special > Mirror commands now work correctly for radial grids.

TTSD-30727 Modeling

Previously, using Save as to save the model could result in invalid rebar sets. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-30036 Modeling

Shapes that are inserted to a model are now copied to the model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

.

TTSD-29131 Modeling

When selecting a role in the US environment or in the UK environment, you cannot select the role separator row (Imperial roles, Metric roles) in the list of roles anymore.

TTSD-16351 Modeling

Previously, pour breaks did not work in some cases when the parts forming the pour were very slightly tilted. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-12143 Modeling

When a model has an autosaved version, and Tekla Structures is launched with a bypass.ini file, Tekla Structures now shows the dialog box where you can select which version of the model to open.

TTSD-34140 Tools and components

Applications & components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

: Importing a .uel file immediately after creating a new model could result in the automatically imported catalog information (for example, thumbnails) being lost. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-32726 Tools and components

In custom components, bitmap (.bmp) images from the model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

are now correctly shown in the component dialog box.

TTSD-34115 User interface

The property panecontrol element in Tekla Structures user interface in the form of a side pane window

The property pane can be used to show and modify the properties of model objects.

The property pane can be customized by using the property pane editor.

now shows the properties that have validation errors because of empty values even if Show properties that have a value is selected in the Property pane settings.

TTSD-33699 User interface

Previously, picking a point to create a new beam in the model could be slow. Now the performance of the property panecontrol element in Tekla Structures user interface in the form of a side pane window

The property pane can be used to show and modify the properties of model objects.

The property pane can be customized by using the property pane editor.

has been improved to make creating beams faster.

TSAC-4024 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, some meshes, on a slightly inclined plane compared to pallet plane, were not correctly rotated to the pallet plane with option Meshes export: Turned to pallet. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-4023 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Now, when there are multiple wire sizes in the same layer for the same direction of wires in the STEELMAT block, they are exported with the same concrete cover (the same Z coordinate offset).

TSAC-4010 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Straight rebars with hooks are now excluded from the export when Rebar export - Straight is set to Uncollected.

TSAC-3993 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export ELiPLAN file (68): You can now disable/enable the usage of the data conversion file by clearing the check box next to the function on the Parameters tab.

TSAC-3951 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): New option All without hooks has been added to Rebars export - Straight to export only straight rebars without hooks. The All option has been renamed to All including hooked. Note that the hooked bars are controlled by the Straight setting, not by the Bent setting.

TSAC-3941 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): The braced girder diagonal wire rebar handles at arcing points affected the double wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.

In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.

total and production thicknesses when bent rebars were excluded. This has been fixed. Also a new option Double wall width has been added on the SLABDATE block data specification tab for the settings Total thickness and Production thickness. This option exports the template report property CAST_UNIT.WIDTH.

TSAC-3910 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export EliPLAN file (68): It is now possible to export strandreinforcement that represents a group of wires spun together

code from a template attributeattribute in a template object that Tekla Structures uses to calculate and display information from a model database

Template attributes represent object properties.

Export Unitechnik (79): It is now possible to set the installation height of braced girders to zero ('0') using the new option Without concrete cover on the Reinforcement tab.

TSAC-3791 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export EliPlan file (68): Rectangular openings at the edge of hollow core slabs with certain profiles were occasionally exported as a thin line, instead of box-shape. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-3705 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): STEELMAT insertion point, length and width were previously incorrectly exported for certain bent and unfolded meshes. This has now been fixed.
